ImpossibleToys began by making excellent versions of the Quintessons and Energon cubes, but if you remember the first version of the Quintesson was twice as much as it is now. Why the price dropped, I don't know, but it may have been that retail couldn't support the homage at that price point.
Anyway, the company should be super proud of itself for those additions to the transformer family. The five Quints and the upcoming Nightbird are worth the price and really fill in the gap for G1 collectors. But they are really trying to work with items that are already imagined.
But, I think DevastaTTor hit the nail on the head here when he said "would expect companies to do a little more research on what people actually WANT to buy, produce that product, and then price it APPROPRIATELY!" I doubt there was much of an appetite for these two figures here, Bonger aside. And not at this price point.
If Bonger, who really wants the set, is hesistant, then this was a bad choice to market. Because if you put out something that no one wants, then chances are people won't order from you again because they don't want to take the risk.
I'm not sure what else ImpossibleToys can add given that they stick to strict reproductions (as opposed to reimagines or add-ons like FanProjects). Perhaps the Beast Machines Drone that unicron.com was toying with years ago. Or the non-sentient cassette scout of Soundwave that blows up in G1. Or scaled versions of Melissa Fairbourn and Kylie. But again you have to mind the price point.
